Colossians 3:12-14

12 Now therfore as the elect of God holy and beloued, put on the bowels of mercies, kindnesse, humblenesse of minde, meekenesse, long suffering: 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiuing one another, if any man haue a quarel to another: euen as Christ forgaue, euen so doe ye. 14 And aboue all these thinges put on loue, which is the bond of perfectnes.

1 Timothy 5:8

8 If there bee any that prouideth not for his owne, and namely for them of his housholde, hee denieth the faith, and is worse then an infidell.

Matthew 6:25-32

25 Therefore I say vnto you, be not carefull for your life, what ye shall eate, or what ye shall drinke: nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more worth then meate? and the bodie then raiment? 26 Behold the foules of the heauen: for they sowe not, neither reape, nor carie into the barnes: yet your heauenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better then they? 27 Which of you by taking care is able to adde one cubite vnto his stature? 28 And why care ye for raiment? Learne howe the lilies of the fielde doe growe: they are not wearied, neither spinne: 29 Yet I say vnto you, that euen Salomon in all his glorie was not arayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore if God so clothe the grasse of the fielde which is to day, and to morowe is cast into the ouen, shall he not doe much more vnto you, O ye of litle faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eate? or what shall we drinke? or where with shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things seeke the Gentiles) for your heauenly Father knoweth, that ye haue neede of all these things.

John 6:37

37 All that the Father giueth me, shall come to mee: and him that commeth to me, I cast not away.

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not iudged. 2 Eor with what iudgement ye iudge, ye shall be iudged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you againe. 3 And why seest thou the mote, that is in thy brothers eye, and perceiuest not the beame that is in thine owne eye? 4 Or howe sayest thou to thy brother, Suffer me to cast out the mote out of thine eye, and beholde, a beame is in thine owne eye? 5 Hypocrite, first cast out that beame out of thine owne eye, and then shalt thou see clearely to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye. 6 Giue ye not that which is holy, to dogges, neither cast ye your pearles before swine, lest they treade them vnder their feete, and turning againe, all to rent you. 7 Aske, and it shall be giuen you: seeke, and ye shall finde: knocke, and it shall be opened vnto you. 8 For whosoeuer asketh, receiueth: and he, that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. 9 For what man is there among you, which if his sonne aske him bread, woulde giue him a stone? 10 Or if he aske fish, wil he giue him a serpent? 11 If ye then, which are euill, can giue to your children good giftes, howe much more shall your Father which is in heauen, giue good thinges to them that aske him? 12 Therefore whatsoeuer ye woulde that men should doe to you, euen so doe ye to them: for this is the Lawe and the Prophets. 13 Enter in at the streight gate: for it is the wide gate, and broade way that leadeth to destruction: and many there be which goe in thereat, 14 Because the gate is streight, and the way narowe that leadeth vnto life, and fewe there be that finde it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you, in sheepes clothing, but inwardly they are rauening wolues. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruites. Doe men gather grapes of thornes? or figges of thistles? 17 So euery good tree bringeth foorth good fruite, and a corrupt tree bringeth forth euill fruite. 18 A good tree can not bring forth euil fruite: neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruite. 19 Euery tree that bringeth not forth good fruite, is hewen downe, and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruites ye shall knowe them. 21 Not euery one that sayeth vnto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdome of heauen, but he that doeth my Fathers will which is in heauen. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, haue we not by thy Name prophecied? and by thy name cast out deuils? and by thy name done many great workes? 23 And then will I professe to them, I neuer knewe you: depart from me, ye that worke iniquitie. 24 Whosoeuer then heareth of mee these words, and doeth the same, I will liken him to a wise man, which hath builded his house on a rock: 25 And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell not: for it was grounded on a rocke. 26 But whosoeuer heareth these my wordes, and doeth them not, shall be likened vnto a foolish man, which hath builded his house vpon the sand: 27 And the raine fell, and the floods came, and the windes blewe, and beat vpon that house, and it fell, and the fall thereof was great. 28 And it came to passe, when Iesus had ended these wordes, the people were astonied at his doctrine. 29 For he taught them as one hauing authoritie, and not as the Scribes.

2 John 1:10-11

10 If there come any vnto you, and bring not this doctrine, receiue him not to house, neither bid him, God speede: 11 For he that biddeth him, God speede, is partaker of his euill deedes. Although I had many things to write vnto you, yet I woulde not write with paper and ynke: but I trust to come vnto you, and speake mouth to mouth, that our ioy may be full.

2 Timothy 4:1-2

1 I charge thee therefore before God, and before the Lord Iesus Christ, which shall iudge the quicke and dead at that his appearing, and in his kingdome, 2 Preach the worde: be instant, in season and out of season: improue, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

Romans 15:7

7 Wherefore receiue ye one another, as Christ also receiued vs to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 5:11

11 But nowe I haue written vnto you, that ye companie not together: if any that is called a brother, be a fornicatour, or couetous, or an idolater, or a rayler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such one eate not.
